I just looked at the weather - the wind chill yesterday was 4 degrees . . . on Thursday, the temp is going to be 69!
Mark drove over to his mom's today and ate lunch with her and I chose not to go. I probably should have gone with him. I have decided that I don't think I could live in Alaska. It would be dark and cold and I would either have to bundle up and hunt for my food and stay inside and get grumpy! Mark said that alcoholism is high in Alaska . . .I need to check out his facts. I can see why.
I've read my Bible. I've written in my journal. I've read lots of commentaries preparing for Sunday school - I love commentaries! (this is amazing -- our preachers did a brief devotion online today on the fruit of the spirit . . .that is what I prepared for Sunday School today . . .and I'll teach next week!! -- I love when God weaves things together like that!)
I've come up with unusual recipes because I didn't go to the store before the snow . . .I've even eaten venison.
Don't get me wrong. I am VERY happy to have a warm home and warm clothes and books to read and a bike to ride. My heart hurts for those people and animals who have been outside for the last few days. Hear me - I am grateful . . .I just have cabin fever!
I've discussed with Mark my route to work tomorrow to avoid icy roads. Like I said, I've ironed my clothes. I'm ready! I have cabin fever!
I found this image online -- it looks happy :-)
